Well... The photos are old but very expressive ...
All the pictures were taken just before Romania got into the European Union.
Nothing more to say ... The pictures speak for themselves.

you are being unfair or misleaded. this compilation has already been over the net for some years now, and more important than this, some of the pictures are not from Romania. well, the ones who were really made in Romania do show a funny or creepy face of the country, but that's not all of it.

from Romania 9 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
I don't really agree with the title and explanation of this post. Some of the things you see here did not come to an end after the acceptance of Romania in the UE, but it's not fair to any country to show only the ugly, creepy and bad things. Because of this kind of "advertising" a lot of places are avoided and disregarded for no good reason. Every place has his beauty and good people. So just an idea, try to make a post named "the bad and the good", not just for this case of course, for the less understanding people ( i think we all are at some point).

good day to you all ...

being romanian myself i can assure you this is not all there is to my country.I actually take great offense with this post of yours.It's the same thing as presenting the USA by showing pictures exclusively to the area of Bronx.
It would be wise of you to search for pictures from towns like Sibiu (the European Capital of Culture together with Luxembourg) Sighisoara, Constanta or Timisoara. Also look for pictures of the amazing landscapes from the Carpathian Mountains, and the seaside or The Danube.

I really enjoy this website, don't spoil it by posting undocumented and unfair information.
Thank you very much.

Romania ar trebui vazuta astfel : prima tara care a avut in posesie bomba atomica , o tara cu o puternica istorie , o tara cu puternica infuenta sportiva si culturala , o tara ce rivalizeaza peisajele norvegine , o tara plina de femei frumoase , o tara ce stie sa rada si sa se distreze , o tara ce stie sa lupte , o limba ce este mai grea decat chineza ... o natiune cu forta de munca si mai ales cu mandrie de fier . daca doriti sa faceti publicitate Romaniei va invit sa o vizitati , daca doriti va cazez la mine n_tongue va doresc o zi exact ca si a romanilor : splendida !!!

I am from Romania :). We are a proud country, with proud people. It's like on a web site we presented some pictures with USA Soldiers in Iraq malltreating the kidds, women and animals. Some do that, some not! It's like we post a compilation of pictures on the net with Bronx, only with black people "in the hood" :), only with 12 year old kids murdering half a school because they wore beated in childhood, and bad examples may be written.

Ok, ur kind of right... I mean we have this kind of people, like u have that kind of people, BUT we have beautiful women, great sports'men / women, great landscapes: Danub, Black Sea, Carpathian Mountains, St. Anne Lake (the only vulcanic lake in Europe ;) ), Transilvania, Bucovnia, Maramures, The Happy Cemetery :), great peasons with cultural value, and the GOOD may be written untill tomorow ;).

r3pr3z3nt 9 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
Hah, every country may be presented like that, if you focus on the poor and pathologic areas only... Gypsy culture of living is a problem that Romania struggles to deal with for decades, and will struggle for many years to come...
I am Polish, I saw places like that in Poland, currently I'm residing in Ireland and you can find similar areas here if you really would look for them [travelers, etc.]... Don't disgrace Romania by posts like that... I met Romanians, as I met Gypsies and I know, that they are different kind of people.
pop 9 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
I'm not from Romania but I can assure that those pictures does not reflect at all what this country is. Romania is a very beautiful country with very, very, nice people that I recommend for everybody to visit.

I ask the admins on this web to change the title and the description of this post. It's ok to laugh because pictures can be funny, but it's not ok to point at a whole country.

Greetings from Barcelona.

bacha 9 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
It seems that only a small portion of these photos was taken in Romania- on the contrary, let's take a look at the one showing an empty shop-this pic was taken in Poland during the communist era (at least 30 years ago), not in comtemporary Romania. Somebody has probably tried to provoke a discussion calling the collection in that way. BTW-I'm not Romanian, but I understand them-their country is stereotypically shown as a nation of scruffy dossers who piss in the street, while these are the Gypsies who do not conform to social norms. And their (the posters' above) reaction has nothing to do with the lack of the sense of humour. The town I live in is also nice and picturesque, but there is a place with Gypsies' sheds in its outskirts. Even though I'm not against them, if somebody kept on showing the pics of their area as the only ones from my town, no one would ever come here on holiday.

I agree that we need to make sure that the information is accurate before posting, but people need to stop being so sensitive! I don't see anyone crying when there's a funny post about American hillbillies. Get over it, don't think that your culture is immune to stereotyping!

50% of the pics are not from Romania and the other are taken after the revolution. Romania is not like that anymore. You would be surprised to se Romania now. Make a trip in Sibiu (European Cultural Capital in 2007), Bucuresti, Constanta. Brasov, Cluj, Timisoara or search the web for this towns to see a more acurate face.

Really funny to read the comments from romainians.
You probably had a big laugh when the site made a similar post about other countrys.
I´m from estonia and I believe, that the pictures could be about Romania. They also could be about Estonia, Russia and all other countrys, that were under the influence of Russia.
Dardanel 9 year s ago MARK AS SPAM

I couldnt agree more, these pictures (apart from the ones with the now famous Dacia autos) could come from any of the above mentioned countrys. Romanians do need to lighten up a bit and normally they are very fun to be arround(i should know). The problem here is that for romanians this subject is a very delicate one and romanian image has had alot to suffer because of the antisocial behaviour of the travelling nomads called gypsies. For someone that trully knows this country this thread is a good laugh and indeed funny because they know that Romania is not trully like this (but this does happen sometmes :)). The problem is when people that know nothing of this country get a wrong ideea about it through these pictures, instead of just finding the pics funny. Anyway i get these pics 10 times a day and everytime they are suposed to come from some other ex communist country so.. not really facts. I am romanian, i got a great laugh out of some of them because they are funny, and i suggest to the people that take a look to just enjoy the funny situations and not get a false ideea about a country untill he has walked a few kilometers through it. And i think it is valid for all countrys. I am new here on the site but i think ill stick arround a bitcause this seems interesting :).
Andreea 9 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
I fell sorry for all of you who doesn't know that in these photos aren't romanian people.They are gipsy people and they are so different from us.I live in Romania and I'm very proud of my country.We may have our problems but this post is bull shit.You should have done research before putting these photos on your website .Blame on you!Do you know that you can be brought to trial by the romanian government??

I live in Romania (in Sibiu actually) and I must say I'm really offended. Come on..what pictures are that?..You made us look like some poor, neanderthal people. Not all of the pictures were taken in Romania. Those places are places at contryside, cases of extreme poverty. Don't tell me that in your country u can't find places like that. You shouldn't have posted only the bad things in Romania because someone who doesn't know my country will think that Romania is just a poor country, full of poor people and dirty gipsies... tkanks a lot... n_what

idiot people 8 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
pictures like these you can get from any country..but as you can see all of them include gypsies that do nothing more than ruining the country's reputation.You should know that gypsies are about 10% of the population(despite most of them left for other countries they are spreading like bugs ) the rest consists in about 80% ro.,5% magyar ,5% german,french and other.I don't think poor people is our major problem..if you would see how many idiot people are in the main cities of Romania (most of them gypsies of course but lately romanians are nothing better)you might need some anger management therapy (that's why ro. are some of the most stressed people on the face of this planet :) )

That is nothing to laugh about. I feel sorry for the people in the pictures and their living conditions. These people need help not laughing at. It is sad that in the 21 century we have people living in misery and poverty. I don't know how could you find these images funny ; in all this, you proved to me just a leak of maturity, I'm sorry to say that but your gesture is pathetic!

I'm not Romanian but I don't blame Romanians here one bit for being offended. What a boringly predictable swipe at a beautiful, hospitable country. Grow up, and thank your lucky stars you didn't live under an oppressive regime which you're doing your best to emerge from. And try look at your own backyard instead of sneering from your ivory fucking tower.

the people shown in the pictures are gypsies and those must be gypsy ghettos. gypsies represent 5% of the population I'm sure that doesnt make them representative image of Romania. and I'm sure not all the pictures - if any - are taken in Romania, and they are not taken "just before they joined the EU" the pictures are old which you already admit they look like they were taken 20 years ago. Romania joined the EU 4 years ago is that OLD to you? the "just before" line was used on purpose to mock Romania
Next time try showing REAL romanians instead of random dirty gypsies - who could be from any country by the way...oh no wait that doesn't go well with your "sense of humor" real romanians are too boring and civilized

and next time anyone calls romanians "racists" with gypsies take a look at these pictures and tell us if we are the uncivilized ones

Claudia 6 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
Sweetie, can I tell you something? I saw both posts, part one with nice pics from Romania and this second part. It's true, Romania does have its bad areas the same way every country does. It's kind of ironic though the fact that ALL the pics from part 2 are with gypsies (rromi)...which are NOT Romanians. They migrated from India all over Europe a long time ago and all they do is steal and do bad things...most of them. I don't believe it's right to show all these pics of filthy gypsies, to represent Romania. How come I haven't seen any pics with WHITE Romanians that are poor and whatever living in bad conditions? All what gypsies do, not only in Romania is to degrade the country they live in and give outsiders the wrong impression regarding the country they live in. White Romanians are not like this at all. Of course, people of all races to bad things, and I'm sure a lot of white Romanians steal and do bad things too, but don't show these filthy gypsy pics as a representation of the country cuz it's wrong. It gives people the wrong impression that all even white Romanians are this gross, when it's completely wrong. So in the future try not to show only gypsies LOL.

Btw I don't know why they put that random Asian girl as my profile pic because...that's not me lol
